Fuel Pump Noise


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys.


I just want to find out something.


When my bike is running, or idling, i can hear the petrol pump running.

Almost sounds like a mosquito in your ear.

Is this normal or should the petrol pump run quietly?

When you turn the key on, before starting the bike, you should be able to hear the fuel pump whirring for a few seconds. Is that the sound you hear?

Those electric fuel pumps do make noise, some louder than others & some riders hear it more than others.


If your pump is louder than others it might have a degraded pump isolator (kind of common on older oilheads)


As a rule if you can hear your fuel pump then all is good, it's when you can't hear it running that you are in trouble.
